Flooded Red Gums

Postby Barry Kirsten » 06 May 2017, 15:28

Sorry I haven't been sharing much of late - unfortunately packing for a move (not a nice experience). Here is one I'd overlooked, a commercial scan from a few years ago lurking on my hard drive. A flooded red gum swamp in northern Victoria. 150mm Symmar convertible, yellow filter, Tachihara Field camera, Tmax 100 developed in D7 .

You snagged a cracker there Barry. Does this indicate that the darkroom is up and running? I still haven't unpacked the office after a year so well done you.

Hi Walter, I haven't got to that stage yet. In fact we haven't moved yet. I'm at the stage of deciding if I can part with anything from the darkroom to make the move easier... i.e., should I throw anything out - not equipment, of course, but old prints, bits and pieces I've picked up along the way and hung onto in case I might use them (but seldom do) - in other words, general clutter. This was a scan I had done which I saw on my computer and realised I hadn't ever printed it. This is a digital version with very limited tweaking in Lightroom. The move is planned for mid-June and will probably be to Melton area, near our two daughters. We're looking for a house with enough bedrooms so that we can each have our own office, and in my case, office and darkroom - and a double garage which I can use a half of as a workshop. The priority of course is the darkroom, a home for the lovely L1200s. Best wishes to you.

If I may be so bold as to offer advice: Your paper shedder is your friend! No second chances with the decision to toss.

Really nice composition and all tonal values handled in a unique and striking way. I have an enormous soft spot for trees and water and this one brings them together wonderfully.

I agree with Alex Barry. Well handled.
